It has $15.5 billion in assets and a market cap over $10 billion. Energy Transfer Partners LP (NYSE:ETP) wholly or partially owns and operates 23,500 miles of natural gas and natural gas liquids pipelines in the Northeast, Midwest, and Gulf Coast regions of the U.S. It also owns natural gas storage and distribution terminals and natural gas processing facilities.
